is the official website of the Princess Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre.

It presents his work built over several years mixing his objects, his travels, his follies, his delusions in all conscience.

Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre died on Friday July 3.
Our condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.

Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre is a free electron.

Extremely curious, with a dantesque appetite for life, with a sparkling, bubbly spirit, she opens some doors and explores the world as a pathfinder.

Medias, finance, arts, events, these powerful players have in common the ability to elaborate an evolution, a thought, a perspective that shapes and modifies our environment.

Hermine knows them well. Rebellious, generous, she loves to meet the other, whoever he might be. As a rock’n roll princess, she passes from one world to the other, from the Gypsy world to the crowned heads and finally she is surrounded by talented friends from all the horizons.

Strangely, space, matter, time are concrete tools for those who love the movement. Hermine keeps a great force in her, a richness accumulated by her meetings and discoveries.

Bit by bit, her art reveals her inside worlds. We discover the heart of a child, a fairy soul building bridges to her chimeric wanderings. That is why she is qualified a « Princess of Thunder »

More than a systematic approach we feel an increasing sensitivity nourished by a growing instinct and produces some poetic installations of whimsical objects. Among them, we find memories of her childhood as well as her mature adulthood, impressions grasped by a relevant eye, in a nod to what life has made her.


Installations all over the world

Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre conceives her life as a ready-made, her creations as trophies. She injects art in art, life in art and life in life. She holds high her banner « Nothing is lost, everything is transformed into a second life ».
She wishes to present her Second Life series “Princessement Votre” series all over the world to share her passion to all horizons .

My installations, they come from my life, from flea markets, from the street; or elsewhere. They are neglected objects, abandoned, they lost their first purpose
I collect them and offer them a second life, as if by magic, guided by my sense of harmony, my humor, my delirium. With amusement and insolence, I assemble them with others and bring them back to life.
Teasing the words, I name my installation and give them a second breath.
My installations, my creations are a mix of all the worlds that I have discovered, explored and kept. Each piece is unique, forever.

My drawings and paintings

The laying part … that is to say pencils, brushes, spray paints are also some expressive tools on paper and canvas.
A little glimpse of drawings, nudes, still lives, animals and a little mutiny mouse.
Fashion, a voluptuous pleat.
Brushes, pencils, materials have been my companions during all my life.
